Despite reports that 2 Chainz was the victim of a robbery in San Francisco, the police department tells Radio.com that a robbery took place, but the victim was a member of 2 Chainz’s entourage, not the rapper himself.
We’ve just learned that rapper 2 Chainz was the victim of a robbery in California this weekend…and it all went down in broad daylight!
According to TMZ:
2 Chainz was robbed at gunpoint in broad daylight Sunday in San Francisco … TMZ has learned … and police say the rapper’s entourage fled “like cockroaches” when it all went down.
A San Francisco PD sergeant tells TMZ … cops responded to a shots-fired call just after 4:30 PM. We’re told when they got to the scene, 2 Chainz wasn’t cooperative … saying he wanted to handle it himself.
Chainz told police his wallet was stolen and that’s all that happened.
Police reviewed surveillance video … which revealed Chainz was clearly the intended target.
We’re told video also shows Chainz and 14 of his people all “ran away from the incident like “cockroaches running from a flashlight.”
Police are now searching for the assailants. Well damn! Broad daylight? Be safe outchea!
